We mentioned this plan some time ago. Here's an update from the AP:
The Minturn Town Council has given preliminary approval to a private ski resort and 1,700 homes near the former railroad town.
The proposal includes annexing more than 4,300 acres owned by the Ginn Development Co. The proposed development also includes a golf course on and around Battle Mountain south of Minturn.
Left unresolved is how residents of the development would be taxed and how that money would be used to make improvements inMinturn, such as a recreation center and a bike path. The action came after 2½ years of planning and faces a second vote next week.
